    No big man

    I really think this team is a big man away from being special. I think we will never be a true contender without one. Are we always going to play small ball?

    Re: No big man

    If Thomas and Naz aren't hitting the wide open ones, then we might as well get a big body in the game.

    We just need to start getting some more length. McKay is a nice start.

    Re: No big man

    We're one true big man, and one legit 2-guard. We have a bunch of wings, but it makes it really hard to defend/rebound in league play, and obviously our shooters are struggling and very aggressive.

    Hopefully Fred can run off a couple of the players that are dead weight on this roster and can add RV, or we're looking at our ceiling in the B12.

    Really disappointing we ran Armadi out of town and kept Bluford.

    Gotta remember Nader has a 7'4 wingspan too.

    Re: No big man

    This team really lacks size inside, we can combat that with good 3pt shooting but lately we're not hitting enough open looks.

    Re: No big man

    Thought Percy gave a solid effort early.... dumb fouls but I'd rather him foul out if he's contributing early over mel georgeS and hogue with 4 each late.

    My hate is not limited to just the Hawkeyes, I have plenty to go around for the Jayhawks and just Hawks in general.

    Re: No big man

    yep. ISU should have a rotation of Niang, Nader, McKay, and Hogue for those spots. Also have Gibson and Edozie. Honestly, I don't see another big coming unless someone transfers and I'm not speculating who it would be and have no idea who it would be.

    They are onto us. Without a big, simply stop/slow down Kane and everything else eventually falls apart .

    Re: No big man

    Maybe they should start running an offense like they did early in the season and this wouldn't be a problem.
